Chat with one of our product advisors at or today! Yes, it will make it easier to match engine revs especially when down shifting going to a numerically lower gear. Instead of having to match the revs to make a smooth transition to a lower gear on your own, the car does it for you.
Purchased it anyways had the sales guy move the car over to an adjacent empty lot and drove it in circles for an hour till I was comfortable to drive it home. Rev matching is used when down-shifting to smooth the transition between gears and prevent shock loads through the transmission.

So is it coming to Malaysia? It's easy to get used to. Thanks for all your help. The driver of a manual transmission must manually shift between the forward gears while using a pedal clutch to disengage the transmission from the engine putting the transmission in neutral during shifting. This is important, as before taking a turn, by listening to the sound of the engine revs, you should be able to predict as to, which specific gear would suit a specific ground speed when you enter a corner.

This innovative system comes directly from the racing world. But double clutching adds a third step into the mix.
Rev matching alone…without double clutching, will have an effect of reducing clutch and gear wear, but it becomes more important to make sure that you've reduced the vehicle speed to what is appropriate for the gear you are selecting before moving the lever into the lower gear.
